Interests and Personality

BiographyI've been obsessively doodling since I was 5. During college, I used art to relax as well as for excitement. Since then it has been a part of my everyday life.
InterestsRight now, my main interest is raising twin three year old boys, Ian and Theo. It's pretty intense. For 13 years I was a top level amateur bicycle road racer (Category 1 in the US). Right now my only purpose for bike riding is so that I can fit into my pants.
MusicI only like good music. There is a lot of crappy music out there and I for one refuse to listen to it. Current favorites are Lambchop, Low, Belle + Sebastian
TelevisionI like terrible science fiction shows like Star Trek, Stargate, and Lost
BooksFavorites are Vonnegut and Ray Bradbury

Very intricate work, it creates a wonderful "whole". Margaret, Artist at Work, http://artist-at-work.co.uk


Hey Mike. Susie, one of the friends listed at your site, is ill. A get well letter would do her heart good and cheer her up a bit. We live in a world that does not apriciate art. We must care for eachother. So leave a post on her board if you have time. Put a smile on her face when she gets home from the hospital. L John TOX


Thanks for your message, happily my kids are too growed up to be chewing and drooling on all of the junk in my studio:)

Thanks for updating me Mike. I love the new piece. It feels very organic. I like imagining you working on it for months. That's great. And it's perfect. Nice work.
